It’s all a bit complicated….. :)

Gone are the days when people used to write a 1000 word long love letter in order to express their love. I’d like to believe Romeo, the famous lover in William Shakespeare’s romantic play Romeo and Juliet.The son of Montague, the Patriarch of the house of Montague,  must have written somewhere around 10,000 love-letters to Juliet, his beloved and the 13 year old daughter of Capulet, the Patriarch of the house of Capulet.

Ah, so let me come back on to the issue I was addressing. So, as I was saying, women have become extremely tech savvy these days and as a consequence, they’ve been adding new dreams and aspirations to their wish list.
